Mediterranean flair at the outskirts of Salzburg: The Hellbrunn Palace and Zoo

A visit to the Hellbrunn Palace and the Zoo is one of the highlights of every Salzburg trip. The picturesque palace was once built as the summer residence of prince archbishop Markus Sittikus, whose passion for Italian architecture was reflected in the design of the building. If you want to experience typical Italian Renaissance architecture, with its spacious rooms and beautiful ornaments, you do not have to go to Southern Europe – you will find it south of Salzburg. The large park invites you to take a stroll and admire the artfully arranged flower beds, where tulips, roses or dahlias are in full bloom. During the summer, a tour of the trick fountains can be a particularly refreshing experience.
